What am I doing when I edit your photos?

Updated: Feb 1, 2020

I get many questions about editing and the best way to explain what I do is to show you! Many people will ask, "Is it really necessary to edit pictures?" Or, "How do you edit?"

Quick answer, yes it is necessary. While I always aim to get the photo as beautiful as possible in-camera using manual settings, the camera can only do so much to accentuate all of the captivating details in the frame. I think we can all agree that this second image is much more charming than the first. If you disagree, then maybe I'm not doing my job correctly (oops!).By increasing the exposure (how bright the image is), adjusting skin tones, lifting the shadows a little, and warming the temperature of the image, I've enhanced all of the attractive qualities of the photo.
